      Schafer, N. E.; Read, Emily E.; Bureau of Justice Statistics; Copus, Gary D.; Holmes, Caralyn (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1990-01)
      The Winter 1990 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum examines the criminal activity of Alaska women by analyzing Uniform Crime Reporting arrest data for 1975–1984. Women do not contribute substantially to the overall rate of violent crime in Alaska, but arrests of female offenders, both adult and juvenile, comprise a substantial proportion of all arrests for alcohol-related offenses. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports on adults on federal and state probation and parole in 1988. Analysis of 1988 data on reported crime incidents from seven villages in the North Slope Borough suggests that crime rates for certain offenses may be higher in rural Alaska than in urban Alaska. January 1990 population figures for Alaska Department of Corrections facilities are presented.

      The Spring 1991 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum describes provisions of the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974 and discusses the juvenile jail monitoring activities conducted by the Justice Center for 1987–1989 under contract to the Alaska Division of Family and Youth Services. The Bureau of Justice Statistics describes the characteristics, criminal histories, and drug use patterns of women under the jurisdiction of federal and state prison authorities in the U.S. Alaska homicide statistics for 1965–1992 in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and Alaska overall are presented; Alaska homicide rates have been below the national average since 1988. Rural justice was the topic of a roundtable discussion featuring Charles Ndlovu of the Community Law Center in Durban, South Africa.
    • Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 8, No. 3 (Fall 1991)

      Read, Emily E.; Fay, Ginny; Bureau of Justice Statistics (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1991-09-01)
      The Fall 1991 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum presents results from a study of child support in Alaska, which found that Alaska has made significant progress in standardizing child support orders under Court Rule 90.3, but that proportional disparities in awards exist when examined by community, type of case and type of establishment procedure. The Bureau of Justice Statistics presents estimates of crime victimization experienced in American households from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).
